WIAW: Day Off and Date Night

What do you eat when you’re not following a routine? Are your eats messed up? Are they healthier? Less healthy?

I find that I eat relatively healthy Monday through Friday when I’m at work. I like to meal plan or at least sometimes prepare my lunches ahead of time. And most of the time, these lunches include plenty of veggies. Other days, however, I’m less inclined to eat my veggies. Why? For me, it’s convenience – they just take time to prepare and when I’m not at work, I’m not usually preparing food. As you can see – today I’m sharing with you  What I Ate Wednesday meals from a day I was out of the office. And yes, I’m still eating a ton of fruit – it’s still a major pregnancy craving.

Breakfast was a smoothie from Restore! I was never into smoothies until pregnancy. Maybe it’s for hydrating or maybe it’s my love of fruit – but I love them now.

Restore smoothie!

And some fruit.

I took a three-isa mile walk in the afternoon so fueled up right afterwards with some more fruit. This time, a giant bowl and a dollop of whipped cream I had made as well.  See those delicious cherries at the bottom?

Lunch was a mismatch of food that was in my fridge. Part of B’s leftover sandwich, a tortilla with peanut butter and honey (YUM!) and an assortment of cheese. Because, why not?

B and I went out for dinner in Little Italy and had a delicious meal. We started with some buffalo mozzarella and prosciutto and then I had the special – a lobster on top of pasta with tomato sauce. SO AMAZINGLY GOOD.

And for dessert? I passed by the cannoli and instead opted for some ice cream made with liquid nitrogen at Piccadilly. There were so many choices it was hard to decide, but I ultimately went with goat cheese with fig and honey – was so creamy!

And that was it! A delicious day off and date night 🙂

Some questions for you:

  • When you’re not following a routine do you eat differently?
  • What’s the most interesting flavor of ice cream you have had? AND/OR what flavor would you have had from the list above?

  1. I generally eat pretty much the same when I’m not following a plan. But, I will include more chocolate and possibly that ice cream in my diet. Where is this ice cream place?? I need to go there. Yum!

  2. mmm smoothies are prob my fave food! there’s a juice/smoothie cart right outside my new office (i changed jobs last week) and i’m loving it. and that robin’s egg blue Kitchen Aid is SO sweet!

  3. Now that ice cream sounds good and a little weird… I would love to try it. I’ve never really had a really different kind of ice cream. I did really like rum raisin which isn’t one that we normally get which was really good! 🙂 When we’re on vacation, I do eat differently, but it does help to eat somewhat similar to home as that keeps my stomach from getting angry.

  4. I love our Little Italy here. We haven’t been in a couple of weeks and I have NO idea why! There’s also a nitrogen ice cream spot… I have yet to try it, but now that it’s so hot out I’m sure it’ll happen soon.
